The hackathon (hacking + marathon) basically is a camp where invited participants discuss about current issues and implement software to solve the problems on site collaboratively. This kind of meeting is very effective for the intensive development of projects, because face-to-face meeting of developers, who are usually spread around the world, accelerates communication and collaboration to exchange their ideas.

BioHackathon 2009 is sponsored by the Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS) and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST), and will be held in Tokyo and Okinawa, Japan.
